Theo, an animated student of Godʼs Word, lives in a cozy corner of a quaint English village, in the heart of the Cotswolds, and entertains two mice, Belfry and Luther. The first DVD in the series, Theo: God's Love, released on DVD through EMI CMG on 9/13/11.
The animation series of Theo guides children and adults through a careful study of systematic theology. Theo discusses doctrines about sin, Godʼs character, the Bible, salvation and godly living with easy-to-understand illustrations that make children want to learn more about the Christian faith.
Theo Presents recognizes a universal fact: children and adults alike love cartoons. Theo captures the attention of young minds with liberal amounts of humor and high quality animation to present the Gospel of the Christian faith through the teachings of Theo and with the use of his two object lessons, Belfry and Luther.
Theo Presents is designed to serve as a multi-media resource tool that will help men, women and children fulfill the Great Commission of Christ, to go into all the world and make disciples and to teach those disciples Godʼs Word. The multi-media outlets include a DVD series, curriculum, books and iPhone/iPad app. Each of these facets are designed to work with one another or individually.
Theo was created to reach kids of all ages. The lessons and teachings of Theo can be used for Sunday school lessons, Christian school curriculum, missions, evangelism and homeschooling.

This is a really cute movie. The little mice reminded me of the little mice in other kids animated movies. My daughter even said "Hey, I've seen those mice before!". I think that in itself helped get her interest right off the bat. She seemed to really like the stories the movie told and at her age of five could keep up with them pretty well. My son that's 11 on the other hand got board and started playing a game while the movie was on. I think it was a little too slow and geared towards younger kids for him. I thought it did pretty well at telling the stories in a simplified manner for younger children. Retelling stories from the Bible can't be easy when you have to try to simplify them to a level little ones can understand all while trying to keep the original meaning.
